Hey there! Springtime is here in Southeast Texas and that means high school senior season is upon us (this is the 2nd wave actually for the class of 2021). This makes a perfect time to talk about a few senior photo tips to help you plan for the very best session ever!
Over the next few weeks, I’m planning a short series of blog posts on senior photo tips. The topics I plan to cover are:
- Prop ideas for your senior photo session.
- How to plan for your senior photo session.
- The most popular products seniors love from their photo session.
- And finally, tips on how to choose a photographer for your senior session.
I’d love to know if you have any specific questions or topics you’d like me to cover. If so, leave a comment and I’d be happy to talk about it.
Your high school senior session is one of the most important sessions of your life! Why do I think so? Well, because this is a huge milestone in your life – this is your “right of passage” from childhood to adulthood. And you only graduate high school ONE TIME! Have you ever known anyone to go back to high school to get a second high school diploma? Correct me if I’m wrong.
I know a few people who’ve gone back to high school to finish and receive their diploma after a few years. But I’ve never met anyone who graduated from high school or received their GED to actually go back to get a second diploma (would anyone really want to go back and relive the days of high school anyhow lol? … well, maybe the hanging out with friends part and not having a care in the world – that would be nice, but that’s really not possible in the REAL WORLD).
You’re going to have a lot of major milestones in your life and high school is one of them. And one that you really only do ONE TIME.
Other major milestones might be:
- Graduating from college (but technically you could always receive two degrees in two different areas).
- Getting your first “real” career job (but according to The Balance Careers website, the average person changes careers 3 to 7 times in their life).
- Getting married (I don’t wish this on anyone, but you could get married more than once…but hopefully not at the same time…that would be weird).
- Having kids of your own ( the average American household has about 2 kids per family).
- And…well, you get the point;)
The bottom line is your high school senior year is a significant milestone in your life (even if you don’t feel like it is at the time – 20 years from now, you’ll realize how important it was). Your senior session should be a celebration of this major accomplishment, capture the happy memories, and be just as unique as you are. This is why I want to help you with these senior photo tips. Planning is key and knowledge is power – hopefully, you’ll walk away with the best knowledge to plan your very best senior session. After all, you only graduate high school once.
Be sure to check back over the next few weeks for the next post in this “Senior Photo Tips” series. In the meantime, you can head over to my senior gallery to see a glimpse of some of my past sessions.
